Baca, Angela – Melon Bowl with 24 Ribs
This is a classic melon bowl by Angela Baca. She was famous throughout her career for her melon ribbed pottery. The form is derived from the melon and squash grown in the area and so there is always an organic style to the shape. This piece is round and has 24 ribs carved into the clay. Each rib is fully polished and the space between is matte. The bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Angela Baca” and it is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration or repair.
